The Texas Coast
05 April 2015 | Texas
Our first morning on SPI we went for a walk along the Gulf side of the island. Cool and misty. The lagoon side is usually warmer. And there is no surf, but lots of wind. That is where the kiters usually are. We are going to take a couple of days to settle in and then we will start to fly the kite.
New Braunfel to Houston
05 April 2015
We spent a day and a half with Alan's friend Kristy (well, an ex-girlfriend) in New Braunfels and had lunch with his old bosses, Mike and Gale Bretzky. Alan and I met on the Guadelupe river in New Braunfels so we spent some time wandering around NB reliving some good old times and drinking Lone Star. We tried to have a beer in Gruene Hall where Alan worked for a while and we used to hang out and listen to music on Sat nights. I was absolutely stunned at how much Gruene has changed. There were thousands of people wondering around, listening to music on a Sunday afternoon in at least 4 venues, and a ton of stores and shops. Where did Gruene go?
Monday we drove to Katy to visit another old GF of Alan's. We had dinner on their porch while watching a gorgeous sunset. Wednesday we headed down to South Padre Island.
